Default The New One - 2007 Cigarette Top Gun Unlimited - Thanks Cigarette and Pier 57

2007 39’ Cigarette Top Gun Unlimited w/ 600 EFI’s

The boat should be complete sometime next week…. Before I post the pics, I need to thank everyone who helped make this happen:

1) Tim Gallagher – The best and most consistent customer service in the world (and good friend). And to think… I was happy w/ my little ’03 525 TG before I met you!!! Thanks (I think).
2) Blume – Wow… where do I begin on this one. For now… I’ll just say, “Thanks, Man!” – and how the heck did that TV keep switching on and off at the condo in LOTO?
3) Pier 57 – David Woods & Matthew Smith (Thanks for joining the family and helping me get into this new boat with such ease and class – yes, Matthew… I’m even talking about you!!!).
4) Skip – Thank you for bringing Cigarette back to the top (as I said…. Your boats are waaaay expensive, but worth every penny ----- everyone should buy one!).
5) Neill – Thanks for building them to exceed all of our expectations (and for the great ride, smokin’ all those cats, and good times in LOTO).
6) Bud – Thanks for all of your behind-the-scenes help and technical expertise – and for putting up with all of my questions!!!!!
7) Schubel – For making this post possible, creating the forum for us all come together and rant! Oh, and for the pizza at Ricks Saturday night --- technically I guess that was Sunday morning. P.S. Don’t worry – we’re taking up a collection for either a SmartCraft system in your boat or a floating fuel truck!!!

And last but not least…..

thedonz jr. aka Mike Areces – First of all, thanks for becoming such a good friend… everything else comes second. Thanks for introducing me to Tim and all of your other South Florida / Miami Boys… and introducing me to the worst possible day to go thru Haulover Inlet.

God – Thank you for letting us all live thru that Haulover Inlet day when the tropical wave was there (no kidding --- the one we saw on TV after we arrived at Monty’s --- while we were all downing Pain Killers trying to get our hearts to slow down and our bodies to stop twitching and out of shock)!
